Lucy’s Sales Role Story
Lucy joined The Supplement Factory within a sales role from a previous career in media sales. She was previously being responsible for all commercial revenue across a portfolio of health & fitness titles (Men’s Fitness, Women’s Fitness, Health & Fitness and Cyclist magazine).
Lucy joined The Supplement Factory with a wealth of experience in a sales role but limited Nutrition/Capsule knowledge but very quickly became nutrition savvy and learnt to become a much more technical sales person. Now Head of UK Manufacturing Sales, Lucy is a crucial member of the team.
“I work alongside the very best in the industry we have the finest NPD, Sales & Quality staff, so I was mentored and taught by the most passionate and hardworking team I have ever worked with. I now book more in a month than I achieved in a whole year in media sales.”
Within her role, Lucy works with customers to bring their product ideas to life. Often calling with an initial idea, Lucy works with the team to create a high-quality product based around the brand’s specifications, advising on health claims they can make from the ingredients they would like to include. Constantly communicating with the customer and updating them during this process is vital and Lucy uses a professional and friendly approach.
Lucy’s sales role involves working with a seriously creative and dedicated team, as well as a varied and range of brands. Working across multiple product concepts, sports nutrition, Health & Wellbeing, Nootropics, Weight loss & her key passion area Nutricosmetics/Beauty from within.
“I absolutely love creating product concepts from scratch, I work very closely with my clients & NPD to ensure that I deliver their key product objectives. I like to provide my clients with standout marketing USP’s using the very best formulations and loaded with superior EFSA & Beauty claims.”
A sales role requires a confident and creative sales person and Lucy provides her customers with as much help as possible to ensure their product/brand looks the very best that it can. When client products are successful we grow together.
As a member of the sales support team, Lucy works closely with the in-house design team that create award-winning designs for clients and help to bring brands to life.
“I like to work very closely with the design team to ensure the brand positioning is exactly as my clients envisaged. It really motivates me to see new ingredients and innovative packaging options, I like to stay on top of trends and provide my clients with the very best options available. The food supplement world has endless possibilities is truly creative and has the potential to put brands on the map.”
